So looking at the back stories of both these races, i couldn't decide, so i looked at their abilities, still couldn't decide. Which is better? The water breathing, armor-skinned reptilians, or the night-vision, agile felines? Also, i am a little fuzzy when it comes to the lore of those cute little kitties... anyone mind filling me in on how they came to be?

Although my personal favoritism goes with Khajiit, it's pretty close. Racial abilities for Khajiit: night eye. That's about it. Racial abilities for Argonian: breathe underwater, immune to disease. I would say Argonians get the upper hand on that. +1 Argonian

Although the lore on both is interesting, I think the Khajiit take the cake. They come in many different forms based on the phases of the moon. They're demeanor and thought process is also kind of... out there. The Argonians have a connection with the Hist though which is incredibly interesting. Still, 17+ different forms based on the moons? +1 Khajiit.

Although... Khajiit = cat, Argonian = lizard. Cats are awesome. +1 Khajiit.

Khajiit wins in my book.

I would go Argonian because they are so like... ugly and lizzardish so they become perfect and beautiful.

Apart of what vigk vagk stated, the khajiit are better warriors, assassins, thieves and mages (although only one sub-species specializes in magic) than the argonians, according to lore of course. But in game, the argonians had hitskin ability over retractible claws. But still, khajiit for the win!

I absolutely adore Argonians. I can't even explain why, when I first saw them I instantly fell in love and I've always had one as my main character in Morrowind, Oblivion and Skyrim. Though Khajiit are actually my second favourite race, they're so cool and interesting! :D

I've always loved the Argonian. While initially it was because I liked to use a spear and run extremely fast (whenever I wasn't swimming underwater looking for treasure (awesome!)). Over the years they have been chipping away what makes them awesome game mechanics-wise. Today they are only fast in water (and the slow orcs outrun them (HA!)), there are no longer spears (aside from Templar abilities), and lock-picking doesn't have a level for them to get a bonus in. I still love them for their scales and horns though. (khajiit are a close second favorite though)

I love Argonians from the moment I first saw them in the selection. I think part of it is that I love reptiles in real life and then resistance to poison along with water-breathing, what can be better than that?!

I actually am not especially much of a fan of any of those races, although Khajiit would probably be my choice.

Well there's the flu rumour in Teso and in Leyawiin there is animosity between Argonians and Khajiit as both consider the other barbaric and uncultured... The Khajiit belive the Argonians to be poor and filthy due to living in the slums district (near the water and river) while the Argonians consider the richer Khajiit that live in the larger houses (mostly due to being merchants and businessmen) to be thieves and liars...
